Is hoặc not replaceable with hay?

Hay is subtly different. If you're asking a question you would use "hay".

E.g "Tôi nên mua x hay y?" = Should I buy x or y?

Listing options (not as a question), you can use both.

E.g. "Cái này hoặc cái đó" = This or that ... "Cái này hay cái đó" = This or that <-- This can also be a question.

They can be interchangeable. But in questions, you should use "hay" instead of "hoặc" :)
